Professionally, I am an interior designer and also owned a home furnishings and European antiques store in Kansas City. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design.
My “New Beginnings Collection” is inspired by nature and hand crafted in sterling, fine silver and 24K gold. My love of color is expressed by adding precious stones and patinas to the silver to create beautiful “Art to Wear”. Each piece is one of a kind, original and beckons to be touched, worn and appreciated.
I love working with the “secret worlds” of negative space in my signature sculptural lentil beads. Who knows what is inside waiting to be discovered!
